I promised some more photos of schools in the Charnwood Street area. These photos of Green Lane Infants School in the 1960s were kindly sent to me by Stephen Poultney, who remembers it as ‘something like Charnwood Street School. There were two assembly rooms, one on top of the other, and most of the classrooms went off these. I remember its demolition in 1973 after the new school was built. The classrooms had four brick thick walls between them – built to last – but no inside toilets for the kids. They were outside, with no roof either…’.
I’ll pass on some of Steve’s other memories of Charnwood Street another time – but here are more of his photos:
Great photos Steve – many thanks!
